From the Highlights: "WHO [World Health Organization] Director-General Dr Tedros and WHO Regional Director for Europe Dr Hans Henri P. Kluge addressed the European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety on the global response to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. 'The EU is in a unique position to provide global leadership in defining the 'new normal' as part of the global recovery,' Dr Tedros said, though he cautioned parliamentarians that, globally, the situation 'is still getting worse.' The Regional Officer for the Americas/PAHO [Pan American Health Organization] has released a report that presents an overview of PAHO's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It also provides an analysis of the epidemiological situation in the Americas and the impact of the spread of the virus on health systems in Latin America and the Caribbean. WHO is working with the Kenyan Ministry of Health, and leveraging 21 community radio stations throughout the country to relay COVID-19 messages and conduct debates and discussions on the disease and its spread. [...] The United Nations Secretary- General's Special Representative to Somalia, Mr James Swan, has called for continuing international support to the Somali government's response to COVID-19 and praised the efforts of frontline health care workers."
